>> there's clearly chance. >> tuning we'll get a deal by the end. year. >> do i. >> i think we'll go over the cliff. >> republicans are angry the president presented them with an offer they don't think is serious. but the president's new negotiating strategy is clear, don't give in. don't start with concessions. even as some republicans say they don't think they need to put out any kind of formal proposal. let me bring in "the washington post" columnist and our politics reporter. good morning. so the headline in the "new york times" is pushing the gop to negotiate, obama ends giving in. and peter baker writes that president obama has emerged kind of a different style of negotiator in the past week or two, sticking to the liberal line, frustrating the republicans clearly. this is a strategy his base might like but i'm wondering will it make him a better deal maker? >> it just may mean that republicans ultimately give him close to what he wants on raising tax rates on the top 2%. president obama has been very clear, he was all the way through the campaign that he would not give in on that. so that's i think what's important now. republicans don't like a lot of what was in the white house's opening offer. they dictate the $50 billion stimulus that was in the offer as a slap in the face. some of these little things we'll see taken out of file deal. >> to that point here's john boehner talking about when he saw that opening offer. >> i was flabbergasted. i looked at him and said you can't be serious. i just never seen anything like it. you know, we got seven weeks between election day and the end the year. and three of those weeks have been wasted with this nonsense. >> okay. >> it's clear he's not pleased from his ha. is the president in danger of going too far? >> no. i think that everyone is amazed that president obama is pursuing an absolutely normal approach to negotiation. people over the last two years got so accustomed to his strategy of almost preemptive concession, you know, you don't like this, i'll give you more. i'll give you more. what obama did is say look here's what i want. this will solve the problem in my view and by the way we still don't have a recovery that's going quickly enough, we still need to goose the economy some. and the republicans are flabbergasted that he's not already making concessions and all he's asking for is okay guys, you say we don't have to raise the top rate, show me how you're going to do it with all these deductions many of which by the way are popular. you want more medicare cuts show me what you want and i think this is a perfectly normal negotiation and i was thinking on the way here, chris, you and i have an advantage in this. you and i covered albany, new york on the state legislature there, where you had a divided legislature, unbelievably contorted by budget fights and in the end they usually made a deal. it was complicated, sometimes it was ugly but they got to a deal. >> but they often got to it very late as you'll recall and state workers didn't get paychecks. >> this did happen. but they got there. and i ambiting more on a deal than not. i think there are some compromise points, for example, raise the top rate almost to where obama wants it and fill it in a little bit with some reduction in deductions. that's not impossible to imagine. but i think the notion that the republicans don't have to put anything on the table, i think those days are over and it's time for them to say all right here's what we want. >> can't come as any surprise to the republicans no matter what they want to say about it the president wants to raise taxes and determined to raise taxes on the rich. it's one thing during the campaign he was specific and consistent on. it seems to me like they are even more upset about what they see his like of specificity on entitlements. let's play what we heard from his chief negotiator, tim geithner yesterday. >> we can't figure out what they need. they have to tell us. then we have to take a look at it and see if it makes sense for the american public. >> when will we see people putting something on the table or is that not going to happen until like the 30th, 31st of the month? >> well, what i would say is in the white house's initial offer they did offer $400 billion in medicare cuts. and that is something that i think the republicans should actually like as a starting point because clearly the white house knows that they are going to have to go up from there. and bob corker the senator from tennessee who was also on "meet the press" yesterday has proposed some legislation that instead cuts $641 million out of medicare. we'll see some scale up in that direction. there are some things that republicans could like in that initial bid. >> let me bring in congresswoman karen bass. so you're hearing all the sides going back and forth but the one thing that everybody seems to just about agree on is that we're not getting anywhere fast. lindsey graham says we're going over the cliff among others. what do you think? >> i don't believe we'll go over the cliff. i do think people are drawing a line in the sand which is a typical part of negotiation like your previous speakers said. i think that everybody understands the consequences, that the president has put forward a plan that would reduce taxes, or maintain the tax cuts for 98% of the u.s. public. and so i don't believe that my republican colleagues want to see taxes go up on 100% but they do need to come to table and counter the proposal. if they want changes and entitlements they need to say what those changes are. i know that where we all draw the line in the sand is that there's ways to find savings every where. however this is not the time to use the fiscal problem as an excuse to completely break the guarantee that we've had with the american public forde kids a. >> republican strategist john feehery. he said about the president, he's overreading his mandate by doing the campaign thing. he is making the same mistake bush made in 2005. and of course he's talking about when george w. bush tried restructure social security, couldn't broker a deal in the home. is there a chance that the president is overreading the mandate, that we know the american people agree with him about taxes on the rich, but anything else is fair game? >> no. i don't think there's a comparison between those two at all. what bush made the mistake of is that the u.s. public does not support ending or privatizing social security. there have been poll after poll about raising taxes on the 1% of the u.s. public, the wealthiest. and poll after poll shows that close to 70% of the u.s. public agrees with that. there was no poll that ever showed that the u.s. public agreed with privatizing social security. >> most americans know that a big driver of the deficit and the biggest expenses we have are entitlements. you said grover norquist house of cards may come crumbling down. is the bigger problem revenue or democrats not wanting to give big cuts on entitlement? >> no. i think the bigger problem is grover norquist if you want to know the truth. he's the bigger problem because he threatens republicans with primaries. so you had several republicans who expressed that they were willing to moderate their view and that they felt their most important pledge was to the u.s. constitution and not to grover norquist. what did grover norquist do? he took their quotes, called them up, he had conversations with them and he read them line by line their quote and essentially threatened them with primaries. he's the problem. if grover norquist wants to run government he needs to run office. >> you have people like saxby chambliss to indicate they were backing away from their pledge. grover norquist gets on the phone to them in the last several days and report of phone calls are that suddenly chambliss is going back a little bit maybe on what he had to say. so, i mean, do you think that his influence has waned? >> this is exactly what i'm saying is that, and chambliss is who i was thinking about. he threatens people. i do think his influence is reining. i think there's a crack in grover's armor and that's why he tried to shore it up last week by calling up people and intimidating them. it's time we hold him to task. he should not be allowed to hold the republican party hostage like he has. it's very irresponsible. do i think there's enough republicans that are moderate enough that they understand the need to raise revenue. but the question is will they be able to step forward. the other question will john boehner lead his caucus or will his caucus lead him. if john boehner leads his caucus then he'll be able to identify 100 votes, 120 votes. he can come over and talk to the democrats and say do you have 100 votes, 120 votes that we can put together and get this deal done. the question for the year is who runs this place, is it grover norquist, does john boehner run the republican caucus or does the republican caucus run him and how long will we allow grover norquist to hold the u.s. house of representatives hostage. >> congresswoman karen bass always good to have you on the show. let me bring you back in and talk more about grover norquist. you wrote that democrats could use their own grover norquist without making a single substantive concession republicans get loads of praise just for saying they are willing to ignore those old pledges to grover. you can give him props as a public relations genius. he's widely known in washington by only one name but kudos for openness to compromise should be received for republicans who put forward concrete proposals to raise taxes that are a lot of different pieces. there are a lot of different pieces out there. now some say grover is overt, others say that he is still powerful. he says look, these members of congress don't make a pledge to me, they made a pledge to their constituents. what do you think? is he still influencing this debate significantly? >> well first kudos for whoever prepared that slide in getting the dollar sign right. but i think that in some ways democrats make too much of grover because, and he's a brilliant public relations guy. but republicans shouldn't get credit until they agree to raise taxes. and then they ask for the concessions they are looking for. and i think what you've seen from the president in the last week, which is why republicans are so flummoxed, okay i tried it the other way. he made a lot of concessions to john boehner right before the final agreement at the debt ceiling time in 2011. republicans should have taken that deal. the president gave them a great deal. now he said all right that didn't work so i'm just going hang tough here and i think what i meant when i said that about grover, you're going hang tough if you're going to win a negotiation and i think you're seeing that now in a way you didn't see before the election, because the election settled some questions, particularly about a tax increase on the well-to-do. >> it was interesting watching discussions yesterday on "meet the press" about grover norquist and by the way grover norquist was a guest on that program. here's what claire mccaskill had to skay. >> i feel sorry for john boehner. he has to deal with the base of the republican party that grover norquist represents. i met him for the first time this morning. nice to meet him. who is he? why is he this guy that has captured so much attention in this? >> so why is he? do you think he's still relevant? >> well, he is, but back to what the congresswoman was saying a little bit earlier, does john boehner have control of his caucus. is he leading his caucus or is his caucus leading him. the reason why you're hearing congressional leaders say they won't negotiate in public because some of these outside external figures do still have some power but they want to keep them at bay as much as possible and so even though we're hearing john boner and harry reid say they are far away from a deal that may not be true because they are negotiating behind closed doors. press conference after press conference we're seeing the market swing back and forth but really i think we may be closer to a deal by the end of the month than these leaders are saying right now. >> from your lips. thank you very much. great to see you two. >> good to see you. >> thank you. >> also today authorities are trying to figure out what drove nfl player jovan belcher to kill his girlfriend and then himself on saturday morning. friends and relatives of the couple said their relationship was strained and briefly lived apart last month but had just gotten back together. the two have a 3-month-old daughter. belcher's team the kansas city chiefs held a moment of silence at yesterday's game. the head coach says the game was an escape from the pain. >> after talking with the captains they also felt like it was best that we play if for no other reason it takes your mind off our misery for a few hours, and so that's what it did. ♪ so will bounty select-a-size. it's the smaller powerful sheet. the only one with trap + lock technology. look! one select-a-size sheet of bounty is 50% more absorbent than a full size sheet of the leading ordinary brand. use less. with the small but powerful picker upper, bounty select-a-size. you won't just find us online, you'll also find us in person, with dedicated support teams at over 500 branches nationwide. so when you call or visit, you can ask for a name you know. because personal service starts with a real person.

>> well, in phoenix the food stamp amount is $29 per week. and to live off of that and still try to live a healthy lifestyle with healthy meals is incredibly difficult. i had to skip a bunch of meals. ate a lot of ramin and beans and rice and lost a few pounds. it was tough. >> a record 47 million americans use food stamps in august. that cost nearly $72 billion. so when you hear about the fiscal cliff and you hear about possible cuts to entitlements, did this experience change your view of that? >> i would say it changed my view. look i've been someone that wants to support the entire community no matter what neighborhood you live in, no market what your socio-economic background. i was challenged by a local nonprofit to take this challenge to make me a stronger leader and i happily accepted that challenge and it was a good learning experience. it was only a week. it's not the same thing of having to live on food stamps full time. that's brutally difficult to go jool your tummy isn't as full as it needs to be. i get that it was only a week. it helped me be a better policymaker. >> you kept a diary of your experience. i want to read a little bit of your entry from day four. i'm facing a long hungry day and an even longer night getting dinner on the table which requires making everything from scratch on this budget. it's only for a week so i've got a decent attitude. if i were doing this with no end interesting sight i probably wouldn't be so pleasant. so, in the end, besides the fact that you found out how hard it was was there something that surprised you that you learned? >> yeah. i mean, look. it is tough to eat healthy on that budget. you know, there are a lot of food desert, a lot of places in cities across america where it's hard to get healthy fresh food and healthy fresh food can be experiencive. we want people to eat healthy. we want them leading healthy life styles. you know, this is a really difficult thing to do. hopefully it's temporary. look we hope and pray this economy is getting better, the job situation is getting better, there are millions of people on food stamps that were solidly middle class in the past and it's looking better and i hope and pray that congress reaches bipartisan compromise. don't send us over the fiscal cliff. do the right thing. be statesmen. reach a compromise. >> politico put some meal suggestions. this gives a perspective. for this food stamp budget you can get one sandwich two two slices of store brand bread. two slices of cheese. that's $1.24. another option is seven ounz frozen fried fish plank. what's your reaction was when you did this from your constituents and what purpose does it serve for somebody like you or cory booker to do this? >> i got a lot of kudos for doing it. i admire mayor booker for taking on this challenge. don't give us too many can you dose. we only did it for a week. there are a lot of false stereotypes about people living in food stamps. that's not fair. that's not my experience. these are hard-working people. they don't want to be on food stamps. they want to get back into a job where they don't have to live on food stamps. any negative stereotypes should be put by the wayside. if you care about people and kids living on food stamps give money to your local food banks so they can supplement the diets. kids can't learn if they don't have the right diet or tummies full. so that was one of my messages is use this as a positive experience, support your local food bank. we're all in this together. city phoenix is a city with a big heart. people of my city, people across the country will step up to the plate and help people in need. >> phoenix mayor greg stanton. thank you for taking the time to talk to us. >> any time. >> talk about a cool room to be in. president obama paying tribute to the 2012 kennedy center honorees. there's david letterman, led zeppelin, dustin hoffman honored for their contributions to the arts. the president had fun with led zeppelin and their lifestyle. >> there were some hotel rooms trashed and mayhem all around. so it's fitting that we're doing this in a room with windows that are about three inches thick. and secret service all around. >> meantime looks like secretary of state hillary clinton has a new bff. here she is with meryl streep doing a cell to at the dinner and had a good time. both of them. >>> to politics now where nbc news has confirmed congresswoman debbie wasserman-schultz will remain dnc chairwoman. two sources say president obama will ask the dnc to sign off on his choice in january. >>> everyone is waiting to see if the president will nominate u.n. ambassador susan rice to be the next secretary of state. she's had her defenders and detractors. both were on the sunday shows. >> it is terribly unfair that she should be the scapegoat for this when really the failures ought to be at the lap of the head of the intelligence community that produced those talking points but none of these guys will say a word about david petraeus. >> when it comes to citizen rice, as far as lind jay graham is concerned i find great fault with what she said on 16th september and in other areas i find her lacking when it comes to being the best choice for secretary of state. >> former president george h.w. bush is still in the hospital. he may not be discharged until this weekend. the 88-year-old has been struggling with bronchitis and a cough. >> the president is meeting with the prime minister of bulgaria this afternoon. over the weekend he hit the links with former president clinton to fill out the foursome they invited u.s. trade rep and candidate for virginia governor. no cameras were invited. these pictures are from the last time they played together. >>> the new members of congress are literally doing cartwheels in the aisle. not bad. that's a staffer, actually. but the lottery for offices got pretty interesting. new members were encouraged to do a little jig or something for good luck before they select where their new offices will be located. >> speaking of new members it looks like the 80s are coming to congress. all four members born in the '80s will serve in the congress. they have come in to their own and now for the first time politico reports there will be more members born in the 50e8s than in the '20s. >>> if you read only one thing this morning, this is the time of year for best of list. so my thanks to "newsweek" which has 12 books that flew under the radar but shouldn't have. including one that they call the scariest book you'll read this year. here's the thing, it's nonfiction and it's up on our facebook page at ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] while you're getting ready for the holidays, we're getting ready for you. tis the season. for food, for family, and now, something extra -- for you. all its own for food, for family, with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. >>> a headline from "the new yorker" has the political word buzzing again about hillary clinton's future much she was the main speaker at the forum conference in d.c. friday night. here's part of a video that played when they were introducing her. >> someone who knows a thing or two about political comebacks. i can tell you i don't think we've heard the last of hillary clinton. ♪ >> i just have an instinct the best is yet to come. >> i prepared some remarks for tonight but then i thought maybe we could just watch that video a few more times. [ laughter ] and this the next time i can count the hair styles which is one of my favorite past times. >> so "the new yorker" was there. here's how he described it. there was much chatter about what clinton would do after she steps down from the cabinet next month. there wasn't much doubt about the ultimate direction. 2007-2008 was but a memory and 2016 was within sight. she's running. joining me now robert traman and joe sestak, democrat from pennsylvania. gentlemen, good morning. so congressman the article goes on the say a lot of factors could derail secretary clinton between now and 2016. obviously health, family matters, renewed clinton fatigue out there. but what would secretary clinton bring to the table now do you think as a presidential candidate that she didn't quite have maybe four years ago? >> right. obviously, chris, you know i think with the fiscal cliff coming down our pike right now that's what we should be focused on. to address your issue, i think that she's done a very fine job as secretary of state. but what i think she most brings and why i got to know her a little bit in the white house when i was director of defense policy is that when i had an issue, for example, on vets matters, establishing a women's veterans memorial or trying to get the secretary of v.a. to pay more attention to orange tea she would host a tea and have people come together and then helped move the ball down the road. i can remember when i had seen her after my very first campaign, i hadn't even been sworn in wret and as we were coming back to washington she picked up the phone and said i have one call to make and when she was done she said you know i thought i should have won one of those precincts and it was a republican precinct and i didn't but i asked them to check the numbers again and by golly i won it. that type of, hey she really cares about the ground issues of people not just on the secretary of state level. i think it's something why i would say to anybody who asked me about her she's a very fine public servant. >> up saw that tribute video of benjamin nept net praising her. tony blair saying the best is yet dome. robert, what do you think would she be the republican's worst nightmare? >> don't know if she would but she would dome the presidential race in 2016 if in fact she chooses to run with arguably the best political resume since george h.w. bush. take a look at george h.w. bush, he was president for eight years, director of cia, former member of congress. look at hillary clinton's resume. former first lady of arkansas, former first lady, former secretary of state, former senator. no question about it, regardless whether you're a republican or democrat you can say hillary clinton is a hard workers, she's tenacious, she's been around the block and would come to the white house with definitely a lot of experience. >> the other thing you could say about her is because of her role as secretary of state she's been able to sort of however above the fray. traditionally secretary of states don't get involved in political matters. her role as the nation's senior diplomat discourages her from wading into domestic political matters that the tradition and etiquette. but the gag order will soon be lifted and i could make the case that's it's irrelevant any weigh marriage equality is a matter of human rights and not politics and she's powerful and beloved enough to say whatever she wanted once obama finally laid down his marker. so what do you think about that? do you think that there are maybe some policy problems out there that she's been able to stay away from as secretary of state? >> i think she has rightfully stayed away from them as secretary of state even the tradition not get involved in campaigns. that said, however, you know even better than i do her record on human rights, whether it was as first lady as she went to china or whether it's just when she goes out to places like india and sitting down and looking at women with microloan type of enterprises out, there helping them to make a good of their life, as often the principal breadwinner for the family. she does believe in human rights. i think that as this society of ours has so well progressed including the military as we got rid of don't-ask, don't-tell that once she's back out there just as a person that she will see that the next step on this is to actually recognize this marriage equality issue and i think that, you know, to put words in her mouth is wrong for me to do. you can see across america particularly as the young grow up that it's something that doesn't matter to them not in the wrong way but everybody is equal which is what america is about. i think that's what secretary clinton is about. >> it's not too early for you republicans to be talking about 2016. there are reports in politico, for example, that governors bobby jindal, bob mcdonnell met privately with gop mega donor. funding is key. for people who is serious, seriously thinking about it, do they have to get in this early now? we haven't even had the next inauguration. >> that's true. that's important. it's obviously very important for us to inaugurate our next president. it's not too early to start talking and thinking about 2016. another person you left off that list is jeb bush. he's quietly thinking about the white house but a lot of democrats are thinking about the white house as well. there's three elephants or donkeys in the room and that's obviously senator warner. there's governor cuomo of new york and vice president biden who hopefully has talked about running in 2016. both sides are playing this game not just republicans. >> all right, thanks to both of you. >> thank you. >> also making news a developing story in atlanta. fire officials say more than two dozen people have been overcome by carbon monoxide at an elementary school. everyone is expected to be okay after being taken to the hospital. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton says if syria uses chemical weapons against its own people the u.s. will act. there are reports indicating syria has been moving chemical weapons in the last couple of days. secretary clinton says their use would be a red line for the united states. >>> the parents of an 8-year-old georgia girl say they want to warn other parents after their daughter was bit by a dolphin at seaworld and they caught it on tape. take a look. sfwhoo. >> the girl's father post this on youtube saying seaworld is trivializing what happened but seaworld said employees and health professionals attended to the girl immediately. and that they are taking the situation seriously. >>> remember this picture that went viral last week. a new york city police officer giving a shoeless man a pair of boots in times square took the money out of his own pocket. the "new york times" said it tracked the man down and found him last night and he didn't have shoes on again. jeffrey hillman said he hid the shoes because they are worth a lot of money and he thinks his life is at risk. he's grateful for what the officer did but he said the story went around the world and he would like a peace of the pie. >> one of the most profitable bond traders in on wall street is under investigation. we have on what's moving your money. >> reporter: good morning. the former goldman partner seems there is nor the story. he had left goldman after questions about his trading activity and now he's under investigation as to whether during his time at goldman he's his purchases or sales of treasury futures late in the trading day manipulated closing prices in the market and then in turn made some of his other trades more profitable. he is now head of global interest rates at morgan stanley. he's continue network there during the investigation but in the worst case scenario, chris, if he is found have violated exchange rules he could face potentially i guess millions of dollars in fines and maybe even be barred from trading on the cme group. he's just under investigation at this stage. >> well for the rest of us in the real world apassengerly happiness has a price. a new study that says here's how much it takes to make the average person happy, right? >> reporter: right. i should also preface this by saying there's a lot of studies out there that tried to determine the so-called financial price of happiness. it also depends on what they look at, whether they look at wealth or income or various other things. the latest 2001 weigh on this is the wealth monitor. they found the global happiness income is $161,000 for the 13 countries surveyed. there was a wide range though, of answers depending on the country. dubai, those people need the most apparently to feel wealthy. they also said they needed $276,150 very specific to be happy. singapore came in second place with $227,553 followed by hong kong. but here's an interesting fact for your, chris. the region with the most modest needs for happiness was europe. germans only need about $85,000 to be happy. that want places them in the lowest on the list. the french need $114,000, the britains need 133,000. >> what about americans? >> reporter: i don't know. those are the numbers we have. but germans at the low end. dubai at the top end. i'm guessing it would depend on, you know, how much you need to live in that country and it's expensive to live in dubai and singapore. >> how much can a plate of sausage and keg of beer cost? >> reporter: they have great beer. >> yahoo! is out with its list of top obsessions for 2012. number five, honey boo-boo. the "hunger games" game in at number four fold by mega millions. political polls number two obsession and our top obsession this year, yes, it's apple and it's iphone 5. sfx- "sounds of african drum and flute" look who's back. again?

[ female announcer ] olay regenerist. >>> if the more than $59 billion spent on thanksgiving shopping weekend is any measure, americans are feeling optimistic about the economy and about spending. at the same time studies show companies seem to be pulling back and taking a wait and see attitude given the budget stalemate in washington. so if consumers are happy, why are businesses so glum? let me bring in columnist with the atlantic who has written about this shift and president of twice research and a cnbc contributor. good to have you here for the first time. good morning. let's start with businesses. what's fueling this seeming pessimism. >> businesses of much more focused on washington, on the whole policy issues around the fiscal cliff because they are trying to figure out their spending plans guessing what taxes will be. businesses are focused on if they spend x and taxed at y what's that going to leave them in terms of profitability. degree of which businesses have come off a really good four years where the rest of us have come off a more problematic four years. finally in this quarter partly because of the fiscal cliff, partly because of europe, partly because of slow down in china profits are more challenging for companies. but they are still making a lot of money. >> "wall street journal" study of 40 major companies half plan drastic cuts to their investments and spending into next. once a budget deal is reached, i mean whatever it is, do you think we'll see companies loosen their wallet? is there a bigger chance they will slow down more? >> part of this is contingent how well consumers do. companies will spend money if there's this active healthy consumer base that justifies them spending money for more activities. so, at some point it's the consumer showing more confidence that's going dictate businesses feeling more confident. not the other way around. businesses can be confident. it doesn't trickle down -- >> does that mean continuing tax cuts for the middle class? >> yes, tax cuts for the middle class. yes, just clarity. businesses constantly complain about not knowing what's going on. part of that is an excuse, meaning it's much easier to say we're not doing so well because of that uncertainty in washington. there's a bit of truth in they want a clarity on what the tax rates will be. >> we know consumer confidence is at its highest. more persons plan to buy a home an appliance or take a vacation. and i'm wondering if this is found sort of on things really are getting better or we're just so sick of tightening our belts, so sick of the pessimism, this year i'm going on acceleration. >> it's little bit of both. one of those survey, university of michigan, people are more confident about employment prospects than at any point since 1984. these judge people's change in feeling mono. you can't compare your feelings five years ago to today. it may be we look like we're feeling better but if you got someone in the room from 2008 they may feel worse. people are feeling more at ease. on the plus side the employment situation isn't getting better but it stopped getting worse. incomes are up a little bit. people have been saving for four years. they don't have nearly as much debt and rates are low. there's a lot of factors coming into this. the housing market is picking up. nothing like it was. but better than it has been in recent memory. there's a lot of reasons why people in general are feeling better which doesn't mean there aren't 20, 30, 40 million people who are doing poorly. >> here's the $6 million question. here we have a situation where most americans are more optimistic, businesses are more pessimistic inverse to the last couple of years when businesses are optimistic and people were pessimistic. is one or the other a better gauge of reality? >> think so. the fact that businesses were optimistic didn't make the economy, didn't make people feel better about their future. it's really that, it's us, hundreds and millions of consumers driving things forward or holding things back that's going determine how business dose. so i think it matters a lot less whether businesses are feeling great or badly and it matters a lot more whether the collective of american society is feeling better and actually doing better statistically and materially. >> so one of the things we need to watch very closely about this fiscal cliff is it starts to make people feel afraid. >> right now it isn't. it's a much more media washington business thing and it should be. i'm not discounting it. people are much more focused on this holidays, the pocketbooks and their own financial future. >> great to have you here. come back. today's tweet of the day comes from our own tom brokaw who writes kennedy center honors deniro, fey, m. freeman, kid rock. no one fell off stage or fiscal no one fell off stage or fiscal cliff. ♪ the weather outside is frightful ♪ ♪ but the fire is so delightful ♪ nothing melts away the cold like a hot, delicious bowl of chicken noodle soup from campbell's. ♪ let it snow, let it snow >>> a twilight wedding, watch out for flying bears and the pope goes hi-tech. who knew it was even available?

bret? >> connor powell in the middle east newsroom. thanks. more on this with the panel. now a standoff of a different type. back at home. the fiscal kind. house republicans leaders calling this a bold counteroffer. that presents a fair, middle ground. the white house is saying it has nothing new with no details. it is a republican compromise solution to the impending fiscal cliff. spending cut and tax increases that both sides mean would mean recession. after what both sides called a frustrating weekend. today's development don't appear to break a log jam. not yet. ed henry begins our coverage. >> reporter: good evening. they are saying the plan is ridiculous, so much so they will not offer counterproposal to the g.o.p. counterproposal and say tonight unless speaker boehner gives in on raising taxes on the rich, the president is ready to go off the cliff. >> right now i'd say we are nowhere, period. nowhere. >> john boehner declaring a stalemate in an exclusive with fox, as republicans teed off on president obama first offer that included new spending plus 1.6 trillion in tax hikes. totally unacceptable. >> i think we are going over the cliff. it's clear to me they made political calculation. white house officials insisted disaster could be amended and demanded a counter offer on the table. >> what we hope for is specificity from the republicans. >> an hour later, boehner did that. oftenning $800 billion in new tax revenue without raising rates. half what the president wants. far steeper cuts to entitlement than the president called for. $300 billion in savings from other programs like farm subsidiaries. >> the president ignored questions in the oval office. he went to twitter to repeat there can't be tax cut at the rich at the expense of domestic programs. they have an unpopular move to raise medicare eligibility age from 65 to 67. slower growth and social security benefit using less generous measure of inflation. boehner decided to lay down the gauntlet and challenge the president's mandate in a letter to mr. obama. writing, "after a status quo election in which both you and the republican majority in the house were re-elected, the american people rightly expect both parties to come together on a fair middle ground. adding the president's approach is neither balanced nor realistic. >> this is unaccept to believe have repeat performance of what they watched in horror in the summer of 2011. >> white house officials note that even erskine bowles is pulling back from the claim by boehner he is on board. in a few moments the president will be hosting the congressional ball, black tie holiday party. first time they will see him face to face in days. maybe they'll work on a compromise. >> bret: ed henry on the north lawn. thanks. let's talk about the fiscal cliff negotiations with one of the key democrats involved. chris van hol season a five-term representative from maryland. the ranking member of the house budget committee. thank you for being here. >> great to be with you. >> bret: where do you see the process now? >> we have been waiting for a response. he put something in writing. good news it's in writing and the bad news it doesn't get us moving forward. but piece of paper. that is a change. >> the piece of paper. house g.o.p. counter offer. revenue, $800 billion. health savings $600 billion. mandatory savings $300 billion. revision to cpi. $200 billion. net savings $2.2 trillion. i have a cording to the white house accounting, $4.6 trillion overall. this is what the house speaker said. white house responded with the la la land offer that couldn't pass the house or senate. we decided we could have decided in kind but we decided not to do that. why is this counteroffer not advancing the ball at least to a discussion. >> good to have something on paper. this is a mix of cut and revenue. look at the revenue embedded in erskine bowles they are greater than the revenues the president proposed. $1.6 trillion. if we go over the fiscal cliff that is $5 trillion in new revenue to come in. the president doesn't want to do that but wants 1.6. is lower amount of re-knew than embedded in simpson. the president has cuts going forward. time to begin the confirmation. the president cuts are different. for example, the president does medicare reform and he doesn't pass it along to seniors. he reduces payment to drug companies. got something on paper. >> bret: consumer price index off the table? >> this is part of the social security reform. social security is owed. $2.5 trillion. from the general fund in terms of the bonds. our view is strengthen social security on its own terms. 100 100% solvent until 2033. after that if you do nothing, pays 75 cents on the dollar. >> bret: are democrats willing to do specific things on entitlements now? this side of the cliff. let's just say that rates are going to go up on some level. republicans get to that point. million dollar cap going up. $500,000 and above. the rates will go up. you get it out of them. will entitlement be changed on this side of the fiscal cliff? >> two things in response to that. first, the great irony here is four weeks ago, mitt romney and paul ryan and republicans are pummeling the president for $716 billion for medicare savings that extended the life of medicare. they said they want to add all the costs back in. hopefully they are back to the position of the ryan budget to recognize they're important savings. number one. number two, the president's plan, budget, contains medicare savings than the ryan-republican plan did. we'd like to see the specifics, what are they proposing with respect to cuts to medicare? >> we can go around the healthcare barnyard again and again, about how you can't spend that money twice. and how medicare actuary said that. the $716 billion. you can either use it to shore up medicare or use it to pay for obamacare. >> right. right. but the fact is the position that mitt romney took as a presidential candidate was to put all of those costs back in to medicare. which would have meant it went insolvent eight years sooner. >> bret: but we're not talking about romney anymore. we're talking what about you'll do to find a solution going forward. >> i know we're not talking about romney. we're talking about the house proposal now. the question number one are they saying we should keep $716 billion in savings? which a lot said we shouldn't. that is important to know. then we can look at the other savings. the big difference between the way the president proposed to deal with the medicare and republicans. the republican plan, their definition of reform is pass rising healthcare cost to back of seniors. you can modernize to change incentive and move to system not free for service. focuses on the value of care not volume of care. >> i'm not hearing a lot of give on entitlements on this si >> there is a difference of the best approach to savings and medicare. we don't believe we should pass the costs -- >> bret: gotcha, so the answer is no. >> no, that's not true. you can reform medicare and build on what we did in the affordable care act. >> bret: this side of december 30 -- >> without unloading the healthcare cost on back of seniors. >> medium income of beneficiary is under $22,000. it's important to be really careful. it's important when you talk about reform and president reform is reduce healthcare cost overall, not transfer it to back of seniors. >> last thing, what are you going to give republicans to get them to place where you can negotiate final deal? >> there are cuts in the republican budget. republicans haven't paid attention to them. but a number of cuts there. for example, he eliminates many of the excess i agricultural necessities. we asked pharmaceutical companies to pay more in rebate and going back to where we were in 2003. with respect to how we reimburse for what are called the dual eligibles, people on medicare and medicaid. the president put forward proposed cuts. time for republicans to be specific. it can't tell if speaker boehner is proposing additional defense cuts in this, for example. >> bret: okay. congressman i haven't heard anything new that you are giving them. so hopefully the door is open for some more negotiations. >> i would hope, let me say i hope when it comes to medicare reform they would agree that the better way to do it is to reduce healthcare costs overall. not simply transfer the costs. after all, the medicare system, in terms of the per capita growth in increase and cost has been slower than the per capita increase in cost in the private health system. it's really important to keep it in mind as we talk about reforming the programs. >> bret: okay. congressman, good luck. >> thank you. >> bret: manufacturing in november shrank to the weakest level since july of 2009. impact of super storm sandy and worry over possible tax increases are blamed. stocks were down today. the dow lost 60. s&p 500 dropped 7. nasdaq was off eight. halftime comment that had critics putting in full-time online and on twitter. that is later in the grapevine. up next, could new epa regulations topple one of the country's big industrys?

critics who say political bias turns up in college classrooms have a big number to back up the case. the web site campus reform looked to federal election records from open secrets.org and found 96% of donations from ivy league faculty and staff went to president obama. congress approval rating has been dreadful but scores low marks on ethics and honesty also. new gallop poll finds members of congress come in second to last among professions beating only car salespeople. car salesman took to twitter today to express displeasure with the poll. 10% said they would give congress a high to very high rating. 34% said average. 54% said very low to low. finally when researching the internet be careful when citing wikipedia. judge in england compiled a 2,000-page report on press ethics in which he warned that inaccuracy in newspapers caused significant concern. he claimed the independent was founded in 19786 by three journalists. he apparently got two names right. the third first appeare appearea wikipedia entry a year ago. far from being founder of the paper, the man's name is the same as a self-described beach bum from california whose only edit was on that page. the error was spotted and scrubbed by wikipedia a few weeks ago, but not in time to spare the judge's error. >>> as we told you earlier, president obama is rejecting a counter offer from the house republicans to get the country off the fiscal cliff. so the stalemate continues. what happens if we wake up january 2 and it's fallen off the fiscal cliff? here is jim angle. >> today's counter offer made clear the republicans want to avoid going over the fiscal cliff. which some democrats speculated might happen to their benefit. >> this is the way the white house and many democratic members and leadership believe. we will go over the cliff. tall tax rates will go up. we will then enact tax cuts for 98%. we will get congratulations from the american people. >> keeping and adding back tax cut for those above $250,000, 9 #% of income would add $37 trillion in ten years and would only save $800 billion or so from raising rates on higher incomes. democrats complain the republicans didn't pay for bush tax cut and no one on the democratic side is talking about finding the off-setting savings now to extend them. several democrats contemplated going over the cliff in recent days. perhaps in hopes of gaining leverage. >> if the republicans don't agree with that, we reach a point where all the tax cuts expire and we start over next year. >> form every republican senate aide said it would be hard to blame one party. >> i think they realize that both sides will be culpable if we go over cliff. >> house speaker john boehner says going over the cliff is far too dangerous to the economy. nevertheless, even treasury secretary geithner suggested on fox news sunday that republicans might need more time to figure out their position. >> trying to figure out how to find a way to support things that they know they will have to do. it will be hard for them. >> the new republican offer, however, adds a new link to that. there is another reason some democrats might want to let the fiscal cliff happen. they might try to separate out any changes to entitlements such as medicare, which the president agreed to consider and many on the left vigorously opposed. >> the thing that is driving the horrendous deficit and debt problem are the federal healthcare programs. medicare, medicaid, tri care and related medical health programs. >> future deficits only make tax cuts even more contentious. any bill that permanently increases the deficit requires 60 votes in the senate. and these days, anything with the word "tax" in it, makes it hard to round up 60 votes. bret?

>> there is clearly a chance. can you promise we won't go over the cliff? >> i can't promise that. that lies in the hand of republican osposing the increase in tax rate. if they recognize reality we can't extend the tax rate, we have an agreement to be good for american people. >> bret: both sides called at it frustrating weekend after the backs and forth on fox news sunday. today, counter offer from the republicans that included $2 $2.2 trillion with tax revenue. four other senior republicans sent to the white house. the white house said no thank you. nonstarter. bring in the panel. steve hayes for "weekly standard" zelney for the "new york times." sindcated columnnist charles krauthammer. jeff, moments ago, actually, erskine bowles, they named this the erskine bowles counter offer said in an interview this is kabuki theater. if both sides got an agreement the way that washington is too quickly, their own side would kill them because they wouldn't think they had negotiated hard enough. they have to go through the exchange. we are in the early stages of the dance to take us a little while. >> there is some truth to that. there is posturing on both sides of this. the white house and speaker bane side. there are 29 days left. business world looking for signal from washington, not much time at all. but in washington that is all the time in the world. this comes down to something on the cusp of christmas, christmas eve or new year's eve. there is a risk for both sides off the cliff. some say the burden is on the republicans that come to the deal. but big part of what the president second term is like. what he can do on a variety of other things is shaped by what happens here. there is a significant risk and students for both sides. >> to that point. there are republicans who say democrats want to go over this cliff. it would be tougher to get anything else done if the economy is in the tank at the beginning of next year. >> it would be tough to move the ball on other things. >> it would diminish capital that the president says. it would create ill will. more ill will than we see now. i think they believe there are things they could do quickly to mitigate the damage it would cause. if it would drive to us recession they could pull back on the rolling back the tax cut for the middle class. doing, undoing some of the sequester cuts. the white house thinks that. one reason going over the cliff isn't as unpalatable to them as it might seem at first blush. >> bret: you think more of a risk for the republicans? >> i still this think more of a risk for republicans. that is why they make the counter offers. this was a serious counter offer. most people think this is what will end up at in terms of the revenue. they did all of the things i would think would count as reasonable offer. other than raise rates. which the white house wants. the white house is adamant. and erskine bowles in the interview you quoted said he can guarantee the white house won't do a deal unless it has a hike in rates. >> bret: trying to get the major players to talk about this at any level deeper than the talking points is pretty tough. we tried again tonight with congressman van hollen. >> congressman, i'm not hearing a lot of give on the entitlement on this side. >> there is a difference between savings and medicare. we don't believe to pass costs -- >> bret: gotcha, so the answer is no. >> not true. you can reform medicare and build on what we did in the affordable care act. >> what are you going to give republicans to get them to a place to negotiate a final deal. >> there are cuts in the president's budget. i know the republicans haven't really paid attention to them. >> congressman, i haven't heard anything new you are giving them. >> they are not clear about the entitlement. that is where the president said the money is. on social security he denied any effect on the deficit at all. durbin said earlier last week social security hasn't added a dime to the dif is it. in fact, in 2012, it adds $160 billion of debt. there is more money in trust fund of social security to take care of it for 20 more years 25, more years. that means that pieces of paper in the trust fund with the treasury says we will pay you. but it doesn't have the money. it's spent the surplus in the past. that is simply a promise, from a treasury which is bankrupt. they won't touch social security. why? political implications. republicans are bad guys and they are the good guys. we don't want to balance it on back of seniors as if you are going to reform this and killing the budget. everybody agrees that is the one area where the treasury is hemorrhaging. impacting the seniors to get out of the drug company. that is absurd. the only way to attack this is to slow down the growth of healthcare. and the one area that you could really do that tort reform where a quarter of all spending in medicine is spent on defensive maneuvers that are unneeded. that $600 billion a year. not a word of that in obama care. no interest in that. that would offend the trial lawyers. on every entitlement they have shown zero seriousness. >> bret: not to mention means testing attractive on the high end. one would think are part of that when you get to that level. >> at least we don't know we're there. i agree with steve the republicans perhaps, probably a bigger risk here. you hear speaker boehner saying the perhaps wasn't paying attention election. the reality is the white house has a bigger bully pulpit here. so how they maneuver and handle themselveses is important. we are talking a few weeks before we see the fine print that you are talking about. >> bret: you know, we were out on the campaign trail. for people who thought once we got past the election this would be breathing room to deal with big ticket items that the country has to deal with. you know, turn the aircraft carrier or start to turn it so we're going in the right direction, it doesn't seem like we are doing that. >> it doesn't seem like that at all. what did we think? thinking that, you know, putting this problem off until the very end was suddenly easier at the end than in the beginning? it was status quo election in some respects. three leaders are still in the position. it shouldn't be that surprising to us. >> surprising to me that the president essentially who would get revenues he wants from the deductions and the exclusions but insist on the rates not for economic reasons blue political. he wants to break the backs of republicans. this is a continue wation of his campaign. he think he is won it and now he wants to drive a stake through republicans. all about the politics. nothing about the economics. >> bret: next up, syria, chemical weapons and a warning from the u.s. ♪ the weather outside is frightful ♪ ♪ but the fire is so delightful ♪ nothing melts away the cold like a hot, delicious bowl of chicken noodle soup from campbell's. ♪ let it snow, let it snow to a world of super-connected intelligence. the potential of freescale unlocked. nyse euronext. unlocking the world's potential. >>> today i want to make it clear to assad and those under his command the world is watching. the use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. if you make the tagetragic mistake of using the weapons, there will be consequences and you will held accountable. >> bret: president's stern warning to jare after the u.s. officials told fox news that the chemical weapons had been moved today in syria. secretary of state clinton said it would be a redlinebe for united states. back with the panel. it seems like this is serious today. the president weighing in. and the secretary of state. and action on the ground in syria increasing. >> no question they took the rhetoric to another level. there was a piece talking about how they consider a bolder approach on syria. to there was a precipitating event. the defection of the spokesman. either way, we are looking at white house obama administration taking this more seriously. the problem they face is a problem that they face in the sense of the last several months. the words don't mean as much now. they have been calling for assad to go for a year-and-a-half. they have been making the threats. very little of it has come to pass. there is very little action that supported the rhetoric over the course of the past year-and-a-half. if the stepped up rhetoric and hillary clinton identifying the use of chemical weapons as a redline which is well understood might give assad pause and people under him pause. it's the kind of situation where if you do this are you worried about what they said today as opposed to all year long. >> bret: there is fighting along the turkish border. turkey is concerned about that. about that increase. they will try to stop syrian jets attacking turkey, where the syrian rebels train. this is also increasing along the border. >> it's definitely increasing if the words from the president and the white house are the same, but it does seem like he has more authority or weight now because he is re-elected. there was uncertainty leading up to the election. not to bring it to domestic contest. if we have escalation of things on the foreign side as the fiscal cliff is going on that could help the white house and president as well. >> bret: charles? >> i think the problem for us is less. the problem with weapons with assad is suicidal. makes no sense. i don't see how he hangs a lot by doing that. he will hang if he does that. the tide is turning. once the rebels negate the air power they can maintain control of the land, which they are acquiring and they are acquiring. in the end, strangle damascus to bring the regime down. what they look at now in washington is a change of regime. i think almost inevitable over the next few months. the problem is where are the weapons going to end up? this is the biggest store of chemical weapons probably at least active ones in the world. and they will be loose. this has never happened before. we might be forced to send in our troops simply as a way to secure them. because of the jihadists among the rebels ironically enough. that is what i think the concern is here. >> bret: i remember on this panel, at the very beginning talking about the number of days that assad would be in power. number of days. then we talk about the number of weeks. you know, now we are -- >> one of the runs is he has had unimpeded supply from russia, iran, through iraq, because obama never worked out a deal with iraq, status of forces agreement where we would control the air space. all of this stuff is going in to syria, including the fighters from iran. so, assad has had outside help. the rebels have had none. that is a huge difference. kept them in power. but if he loses criminal of air power, he will lose the country. >> i think assad will hang no matter what. i don't think he has tremendous interest not use chemical weapons. what is interesting about what the president said it was assad and people under him. the message was directed to those people more than assad. >> bret: that is it for the panel. but stay tuned for a lighter moment in the middle of all the fiscal standoff stuff. ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] everyone deserves the gift of all day pain relief. this season, discover aleve. all day pain relief with just two pills. uh... um... hm... umm... uh... oh ! the windows phone 8x by htc on verizon. it features easy to navigate live tiles that are simple to customize. just pin what matters most right to your homescreen. exclusively with data sense-- a feature that makes the most of you plan. only on verizon.
